Random Golf Footnotes from John Fisher 
Ralph_GuldahlIn the 1938 PGA, two of the era’s star players, Paul Runyan and, Sam Snead, met in the final for the Wanamaker Trophy. Snead was the oddsmakers’ 10-1 favorite to win the match. He was tall, strong and with a model swing drove the ball among the longest hitters on the professional tour. The slightly built Runyan – about 5 feet 7 inches and 130 pounds – used an unorthodox loopy swing as one of the game’s shortest hitters.

Runyan, who was raised in rural Arkansas, was introduced to golf as a caddie. He quit school after the eighth grade, and at age 18 became the head professional at Concordia Country Club in Little Rock.

A NOTE ON OUR YOUTH ON COURSE PROGRAM 
YOC_Banner

One of our core beliefs at Miami Valley Golf is believing that every child deserves access to the life changing opportunities that our game can provide regardless of socioeconomic status.  

With that in mind, in 2018, we teamed up with Youth on Course to bring this national program to our Miami Valley area.  

Youth on Course members can play at participating courses for $5 or less during allotted times, after paying a small membership fee which is also $5. 

Our foundation (Miami Valley Golf Foundation) supports this program locally by supplementing the difference in green fees to the participating facility.  

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we will need additional assistance as some of our opportunity for fund raising will not be available.  If possible, we encourage you to support this program.  

An easy online contribution can be made here. 

Thank you for your consideration!
